Center for Awareness, Response, and Education

The mission of CARE is to provide information, advice, crisis counseling, support, advocacy, referrals and education about sexual violence (including sexual assault, rape, domestic violence and stalking) as well as consent, healthy relationships and healthy sexuality to the Northwestern University community.

Our goals are to create a culture of healthy sexuality at Northwestern University where sexual violence of any kind is not tolerated and to ensure that incidences of sexual violence are addressed swiftly and appropriately.

CARE falls under the purview of Health Promotion and Wellness; both are organizationally part of the Northwestern University Health Service, a AAAHC-accredited health care facility.
